If you want to go somewhere where there are more foreigners hanging out, Ropponggi is the area you want to head to. There are many pubs, bars and restaurants in the area too. Ropponggi Hills nearby boasts some of the most expensive properties in Tokyo.

This place has a buzz about it and if you want, you can keep walking for easily a couple of hours. There is not much to shop before you reach Roppongi Hills, but its always populated. I dont say crowded cause its not, but the buzz is very similar to what you have at Times Square.

Tokyo is an huge city with a lot of fun nightlife choices, but knowing where anything is and finding a fun and safe group of people to go with can be a little scary for travelers and residents alike.

An organized group call Tokyo Pub Crawl (bar hopping) can take care of all the planning and guess work for you. Whether you’re looking to have a night out with you friends or meet new people, all you have to do is show up and have fun!

Hosted by two friendly individuals and supporting staff. Each bar you go to you get a free mild shot. Drinks are discounted off the normal Roppongi Prices. Good pacing from bar to bar, you don't stay in one location too long, and changing bars gives you an opportunity meet and interact with people you missed in the previous bar.

As the night goes on the each bar gets less bar-like and more club-like. Which is good pacing, because by the third bar you feel more loose and comfortable and shake it a bit because of the new friends and alcohol. The final fourth bar is just crazy and feels like your dancing with 50 of your closest friends.

Whilst we walked through Roppongi on a number of occasions during our visit, I was very very glad we weren't staying there. It is extremely busy and full of people standing on street corners trying to lure you into their shops or restaurants.
Many of the prices seem ridiculously high for meals and drinks, so if you are looking to have a cheaper holiday then I wouldn't recommend spending too much time around here.
Nice to visit but not to stay.

Maybe because I live and work in Roppongi, right on the strip, I am jaded. For me it's just noise and drunken stupidity. You have to mentally train yourself to ignore all the hawkers trying to drag you into their clubs with the ever so catchy phrase "hey man, hey man, t*tties man." Avoid Roppongi - go someplace else - unless you really dig drunken sailors, whether they are or are not sailors along with all the 'fun' things that accompany that type of area. (I'm focused particularly on the area immediately surrounding Roppongi crossing - other parts aren't *as* bad)
